A24 have dropped the first full trailer for their upcoming The Disaster Artist, a film we caught yesterday, one which we can now call one of the best films of the year, and one of the best comedies in the last ten.
Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”). The Disaster Artist, stars James Franco, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogen.
Here’s a little from our full review:
Franco’s film had the daytime festival audience eating out of the palm of its hand for the majority, scene after scene resulting in tons of laughter, as well as heartfelt emotion – I cannot even begin to imagine how this played at the infamous Midnight Madness. the TIFF’s famous spot for fan reaction, the previous evening. It received a standing ovation, and I actually weeped on my way out, not because of the ending, but because of the whole experience of the last 100 minutes or so.
Very rarely do you get a film where you’d go right back into the theatre and watch it again immediately after the first screening and have the same emotions.
The Disaster Artist is an eye-watering, face-aching crowd-pleaser and the funniest film of the year by quite a mile. I cannot wait to see it again and again.

U.S. cinemas will get the film on December 1st, but there’s sadly no UK release in the diary – but expect that to change soon.
